Unique upcycled pure silk eco print jersey top Size Large

Sustainable, beautiful and practical

Sometimes you want something more than a simple white T-shirt.  Everyone has those in their wardrobe.  You will be the only person with this gorgeous silk jersey T-shirt.  Originally manufactured by Klass Collection this takes T-shirts to the next level.

A lovely soft upcycled pure silk jersey T shirt top eco printed with large and small cotinus leaves.  In this example the cotinus, which can produce a range of colour has given a lovely lilac grey print.  Each side of the leaf produces a very different depth of colour, the result is a fascinating contrast between deep rich colour and pale ghost like echo prints.

Silk jersey is a very flexible and practical fabric.  It will not crease, making it ideal for packing, particularly when travelling with hand luggage alone and space is at a premium.  Silk is cool in summer and warm in winter, and as it is so light is ideal for layering.

The printing process produces permanent prints that will not wash out or fade.  This is a stunning quality silk blouse that has  been hand printed and repurposed to give it a completely new life.   A unique piece to lift any outfit.

Why not pair it with a sophisticated linen and silk jacket
